Ten 50x50 Icons for Sci-Fi Game (Multiple Winners)

  • Status: Closed
  • Prize: $50
  • Entries Received: 49
  • Winner: HotCross

Contest Brief

We have a set of icons already created that will be used within a sci-fi game. You can see these icons as an attached file but they are purposefully in a JPG format to make them blurry so they cannot be easily stolen.
To pad out the set we are looking for about another 50 icons in the same pixel art style that feature various characters, objects, materials etc that could appear within a sci-fi game. We therefore plan to award this $50 prize to 5 different entries and they don't all have to be from the same freelancer.

Icon Details
The final submission should be a single image in PNG format
That image must contain 10 icons that are each no larger than 50x50 pixels
The icons can be smaller than 50x50 if required but ideally as close to that as possible
The icons should be in a pixel art style that is similar to the icons we already have

Icon Subject
Each icon set can either cover a specific subject or be a mix of various subjects
The subjects that we are looking for are:
Characters (Scientist, Worker, Pirate, Soldier, Civilain, Cyborg, Starship Captain etc)
Aliens (Monsters, Various Humanoids etc)
Materials (Gold Ore, Silver Bullion, Glass Panels etc)
Components (Starship Engines, Starship Wiring, Starship Computers, Generators etc)
Vehicles (Mechs,, Sci-FI Fighters/Bombers, Futuristic Tanks etc)
If you want to submit anything else then we will consider it and give feedback

Submitting an Entry
When you first submit please only include a couple of icons so that we can give feedback
We don't want you wasting your time if the style/subject is not appropriate
Each icon must be your own work and created specifically for this competition
If we believe that you have just used someone else's work we will ignore your submission

Thank you for checking out the details of this competition

    Hello,
    it would be a lot better if you provide more detailed feedback and brief because we don't understand exactly what you want.
    If you want better result from us then kindly provide us with the information we need and it will be like (What are the elements you need-what is your idea about a set of things- what should it contain exactly-more clear examples about the style you need...etc)
    If that is ok with you then please extend the contest.
    Thanks

      I think the style can be seen from the examples we posted in the brief (http://data.freelancer.co.uk/contest/51860/current_icons.jpg). They are all detailed with defined but thin outlines and this is standard PixelArt. The style can also be seen in the entries that received the highest ratings (https://www.freelancer.co.uk/contest/Ten-x-Icons-for-SciFi-Game-Multiple-Winners-51860-byentry-2292829.html & https://www.freelancer.co.uk/contest/Ten-x-Icons-for-SciFi-Game-Multiple-Winners-51860-byentry-2209000.html).

      When it came to submissions that did not have the style required in the brief but did have an interested style that we could use we didn't provide enough feedback on what a 'set' is for us. Partly the problem was that we did not have time to give the feedback required in those situations and in hindsight we would have just said that other styles could not be accepted.

    This is #25 a Sci-fi style drone , it is a Cyber-Spider which shoots laser beams from a cannon on it's mouth.
    It will be my sample of Sci-fi section.
    If you like it please tell me so i can make more creatures.
    PS: i made 3 colors of it to see different options, or maybe you can use all of them to represent different level of this monster or whatever you want.

      Each icon is 50x50 pixels. If you want to place all of the icons into one image that would be helpful and it can be any size.
